2018 CESSE CEO Meeting

February 18 - 21, 2018


"What Does the Association of Tomorrow Look Like and How Will Our Decisions Today Shape It"

The 2018 CESSE CEO Meeting will look at several factors that grow out of the conference theme, including, the culture of marketing, decision-making based on behavioral economics, new membership models, research on cognitive biases and its impact on financial performance, and the role and impact of online communities on our associations. 

The 2018 CESSE CEO Meeting will be held at The Westin Cape Coral Resort At Marina Village in Cape Coral, FL located just 13 miles from Fort Myers. The Westin Cape Coral Resort offers 19 stories of breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico, Caloosahatchee River and Tarpon Point Marina. The resort leaves nothing to be desired, with three outdoor pools, full-service business center, 24-hour fitness center, and wide range of activities for guests of all ages to enjoy.
